In situ net cleaning guideline- 2013

The Environmental Best Management Practice Guideline for In situ Net Cleaning of Salmon Cages Using Marine Inspector Cleaner (MIC) (the EBMP guideline) has been produced in response to an identified need to establish an industry environmental benchmark for the activity of in situ net cleaning undertaken by Tasmanian salmon farmers.  These guidelines are based on the outcomes of the research in Sections 1-3 of this report.

The EBMP guideline has been developed by a steering committee comprising of representatives from Tassal Operations Pty Ltd (Tassal) and Huon Aquaculture Company Pty Ltd (HAC) in conjunction with professional input from the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), Australian Laboratory Services (ALS) Burnie Division, and Analytical Services Tasmania (AST), as well as consultation with other industry groups and stakeholders.

This guideline was made possible by a Federal government Caring for Our Country grant.
